Turn HTML and CSS into a hosted CMS in seconds

It really is that simple: Cloud Cannon uses the Dropbox API to make your site live and editable straight away. All you need to do is add class="editable" to every div that should be so, and put your files into Dropbox. Your clients can then add their content and make their edits directly in the browser. It works with HTML, CSS and JavaScript, and there’s no need to anything special beyond adding this class. It works fine with things like Wufoo, Dreamweaver, MailChimp and so on.
